One of my very best thrift shop finds, this lovely blue velvet dress:
The dress is by Basic Editions (a Kmart line) and I found it in the thrift shop in November 2011; the shoes are another thrift shop acquisition ~ Moda Spana pewter spike heel pumps, found in November 2012. Other accessories are shiny bow, lots of silver jewelry, silver belt, and natural hose.
I think this portrait is cute:
